Paulo Petrarca

Over the last 15 years, Paulo Petrarca has built a very strong profile in Brazil as an independent art advisor, establishing tight relationships with a vast network of collectors, curators, artists and art specialists in the country and is today a leading reference for Brazilian collectors who want to acquire international art. 

Paulo Petrarca and Alexandra Mollof met in the early 2000s and started working closely together establishing an official partnership in 2008. This association created a real bridge for their clients, with strong cross-fertilisation between the Brazilian and the international art markets. This new structure opened up new opportunities for their Brazilian clients wanting to purchase international art but also enabled them to introduce the work of many Brazilian artists to international clients.

Parallel to his activity as an art advisor, Paulo Petrarca has organised important exhibitions of British Art in Brazil, supported by Cultura Inglesa and the British Council, including Painting as a Foreign Language in 2002, Paper Democracy in 2004, Fast Forward in 2010, Concrete Parallels in 2012 and Nostalgia para o Futuro (in association with Lisson Gallery) in 2013, all at Centro Brasileiro Britânico, São Paulo.
